EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed the performance of general manager Howie Roseman and confirmed that the NFL's youngest GM would remain with the organization. "I think Howie's done a great job," Lurie said Sunday after the team's season-ending 34-26 win over the New York Giants. Will Howie be back? "Is that the question?" Lurie said. Yes. "Yes. " Roseman, 39, is entering his sixth season as GM. The team has gone 42-38 (.525 winning percentage)

There's a story about Danny Watkins and the Eagles, and it bears mentioning because the team's current top draft pick is struggling as much as the fireman did in his first NFL season. The Eagles knew from almost the first practice that Watkins didn't have what it took to perform in the pros, and certainly not at a level expected for a first-round offensive lineman. Before the Eagles had even donned pads in the lockout-delayed 2011 training camp, Andy Reid believed he had seen enough and confided to some in the organization that Watkins was a mental novice when it came to football.

Fresh out of Fordham Law School a mere 10 years ago, Howie Roseman showed up at Veterans Stadium ready for the first day of his Eagles internship. He felt as high as a first-round draft choice. "I come in, I'm wearing a shirt and tie - I'm in the National Football League," Roseman said. Roseman reported to Joe Banner, the Eagles' president, who had hired him to concentrate on salary cap issues. Right away, Roseman had a question for his new boss: "Where do I sit?" Banner told Roseman the truth.

AS ANDY REID trudged toward his inevitable end as Eagles head coach last December, attention naturally pushed in the direction of Howie Roseman, the Eagles' cherub-faced general manager operating in only his first season without Joe Banner over his shoulder. Some, including his boss, Jeffrey Lurie, saw Roseman as a shrewd judge of talent, crediting him with the choices made in the 2012 draft, while discounting his culpability in previous drafts and transactions, including the great free-agent "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, which accelerated the Eagles' dive from playoff contender to their current status among NFL rebuilders.

Picture this: The Eagles are on the clock with the No. 4 overall pick and the first three prospects on their draft board already have been chosen. The best available player is graded appreciably lower than the first three, isn't a schematic fit, and the Arizona Cardinals are offering the No. 7 selection and a third-rounder to move up three spots. The Birds brain trust has prepared for this scenario, but someone has to make the final decision. Will it be Chip Kelly or Howie Roseman?

For Howie Roseman, last week's Eagles front-office shake-up cut short his childhood dream of being an NFL general manager. Regardless of his new title as the Eagles' executive vice president of football operations, Roseman will not hold the role that completed a rapid ascent in the organization. He was stripped of the player-evaluation duties he had spent much of his 15-year Eagles career trying to prove he could fulfill. On the day Andy Reid was fired, Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie endorsed Roseman.

Howie Roseman could have puffed out his chest or pointed fingers or reveled in an afternoon of vindication. Because as Eagles general manager, Roseman will eventually receive blame and criticism again. It's an occupational hazard. Yet on a day when Roseman was billed as influential in helping the Eagles land Chip Kelly as head coach, he refused to admit he felt vindicated when offered the forum. "I don't want to make this about me," Roseman said. "I think it's about our organization, our team, and giving our fans back the team they're used to. That would be vindication to me. " Roseman had been the target of criticism during the Eagles' coaching search, especially when they appeared to be exhausting their list of candidates.

Jon Gruden and Eagles general manager Howie Roseman have both been drawing questions - in different ways, says Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Gruden has been contacted by four clubs about their head-coaching jobs - and has turned them all down, the "NFL Insider" reports , not naming names. Roseman, on the other hand, is being whispered about around the league as a hindrance to the Eagles landing a top-notch coach, La Canfora wrote this morning . As of 10 days ago, Gruden hadn't spoken with the Eagles, according to ESPN analyst and ex-Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworski . Since then, Gruden has been widely endorsed for the Eagles job not only by Jaworski, but former Eagles coach Dick Vermeil , NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock , former Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell , and Inquirer columnist Phil Sheridan . And Gruden would be interested in the right job. "He would have loved a shot at the Carolina job, the chance to work with [quarterback]

Howie Roseman "does an outstanding job" in managing the salary cap. Tom Gamble is a "heck of a football guy. " You don't need to read between the lines to know how Chip Kelly views the Eagles' top two personnel executives. Roseman has spent the last decade - five years as general manager - working to establish his credentials as a "football guy" after not coming up the scouting ranks in the traditional manner and transitioning over from the business side of operations. And Kelly effectively put him back in that box when he was asked Monday about his involvement in player contracts.

Chip Kelly said Wednesday that Howie Roseman had final say on the Eagles' last two drafts, including the selection of linebacker Marcus Smith in the first round last year. "Howie had final say on the decision," Kelly said when asked about the selection of Smith, who played only 68 snaps on defense in 2014. Aside from second-round wide receiver Jordan Matthews, the early returns on last year's draft haven't been encouraging. Former Oregon players Josh Huff and Taylor Hart, who played under Kelly in college, were selected in the third and fifth rounds.

THE EAGLES' front-office power shift was all Jeffrey Lurie's doing, Chip Kelly said yesterday. Oh, and trading way up for Marcus Mariota? Not gonna happen. The team's 2015 quarterback? Sam Bradford or Mark Sanchez, probably Bradford if he's healthy, from the tone of Kelly's remarks. Chip gets along just fine with Howie Roseman, he said, but the much-questioned drafting of Marcus Smith in the first round last year was Howie's fault. Anything we missed, hot-button topicwise?

The Eagles have a proposed trade in place that would send Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy to the Buffalo Bills for linebacker Kiko Alonso, according to two NFL sources. The trade cannot be finalized until Tuesday, when the new league year opens at 4 p.m. The blockbuster move sends the Eagles' all-time leading rusher to Buffalo for the 24-year-old Alonso, who played under Eagles coach Chip Kelly at Oregon. Kelly spoke at a fund-raiser in Cherry Hill on Tuesday night, but when reporters asked about the McCoy trade, Eagles vice president of team security Dom DiSandro ushered him out the back door.

WE LEARNED last March that Chip Kelly isn't afraid to shake things up when he released DeSean Jackson. We learned it again yesterday when Kelly sent shock waves through EaglesNation by agreeing to trade away his star running back, LeSean McCoy, and moving closer to releasing the second best pass-rusher in franchise history, Trent Cole. The moves, along with the release earlier in the day of cornerback Cary Williams, and last week's exit of veteran right guard Todd Herremans, are largely, but not entirely, salary-cap motivated.

During this quiet Eagles offseason in which the silence is only broken by rambling assumptions from the outside, it was a rare moment over the weekend when former general manager Howie Roseman cleared his throat and had something to say. What he said is that, at least from his point of view, one of the most popular recent assumptions isn't a very good idea. According to Roseman, who spoke at the Geek Thanksgiving known as the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference, trading up in the first round of the NFL draft in order to get a coveted player is rarely worth what you have to give up. He doesn't recommend it. "The history of trading up for one player, when you look at those trades, isn't good for the team trading up and putting a lot of resources into it," Roseman said, "because the guys who are really good at the draft, if you're hitting on 60 percent of your first-round picks, that's a pretty good track record.

BOSTON - The night before Howie Roseman's third draft as the Eagles' general manager in 2012, the deal with the Seahawks was already done. Once the Eagles were on the clock, Roseman picked up the phone and completed the trade, moving up from 15th to 12th overall to nab Fletcher Cox. "The trade was done 9 minutes before we picked," Roseman said on Saturday. "There was so much time on the clock that we then got another trade offer. Trade chat is nice, but moving up is really player driven.

History shows that trading up for one player in the NFL draft is not favorable for the team that must surrender significant resources, Howie Roseman says. That was one of the topics the Eagles executive vice president of football operations addressed Saturday while he spoke on a panel at the MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston. The debate about trading up in the draft is relevant in Philadelphia because the Eagles would likely need to part with valuable picks and/or players if they want to acquire Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota.

INDIANAPOLIS - Ed Marynowitz's first seven months working for the Eagles overlapped with Andy Reid's final season in Philadelphia, giving Reid enough exposure to the team's new vice president of player personnel that the longtime coach praised Chip Kelly's decision to promote him. "Ed's on the rise, boy," Reid said Wednesday at the NFL's annual scouting combine. "He's a good one. I think it was a great choice by Chip. " In May 2012, the Eagles made seven front office transactions.

INDIANAPOLIS - Andy Reid spoke recently with Howie Roseman, Reid said yesterday, and "Howie's doing good. " Maybe you read that sentence, shrugged your shoulders and said, "eh. " But for the Eagles' information-starved media corps, which has not laid eyes on the former general manager since the Jan. 2 restructuring of the team's front office, this was a gleaming, rare pearl of information. The way most teams operate, yesterday's opening of the NFL Scouting Combine would have been a day to talk to Eagles head coach Chip Kelly about how he sees his role in the draft process, now that Kelly has full personnel control.

In a scene that won't be repeated, the man in charge of the Eagles' player-personnel decisions huddled with some media members at Lucas Oil Stadium during last year's NFL scouting combine and spoke at length of his affection for and commitment to the team's No. 1 quarterback. Howie Roseman went on and on about Nick Foles that day, about an up-and-coming quarterback whom the Eagles had an obligation to support, and things certainly have changed since then. No Eagles representative is scheduled to speak at next week's combine.
